From there: Whether the revitalized Warriors have turned the rest of the NBA into a cute story (35:00), a brief Wizards update, the Nets and other nominations for this season's happiest fanbase, nominations for the NBA's most miserable fanbases, and more dumb bickering about conference imbalance. At the end (55:00): The return of The Lantern™ to discuss analogies for Boogie's return to the Warriors, plus some questions about whether the Warriors have ever been the most hated team in sports.
